This game is about breaking and placing blocks. At first, people built structures to protect against nocturnal monsters, but as the game grew players started to work together to create incredible creations, ranging from scale replicas of spaceships, to working computers, to entire cities influenced by their favorite movies.

You can also visit a land of mushrooms if it sounds more like your cup of tea.
